In case you were wondering

My oldest nephew is the starting quarterback, and also plays defense, for Perry County High School in Linden. He’s a junior this year; he’s been the starting quarterback since he was a freshman.

Anyway, this is the third week of their season, so let’s take a moment and add up the scores for the first three weeks, shall we?

Total points scored by my nephew’s team in three weeks: 120 (37, 50, 33)

Total points scored by their opponents in three weeks: Zero. (Zip, zilch, nada)

I just thought you might like to know.

Nephew update

I have four terrific nephews and three terrific nieces, and I am proud of all of them. On this particular occasion, I am writing about my oldest nephew, Jacob.

If you have a copy of this morning’s Tennessean handy, look at the “Scoreboard” page.

Jacob plays for Perry County High School, and like most players at 1-A schools he plays both offense and defense.

Number one in tackles, as he has been pretty much all season? Jacob Tucker, with 119.

Number three in passing, with 138 completions for 2,207 yards? Why, that would be Jacob Tucker. He’s the starting quarterback, and has been since last year, when he was a freshman.

He also makes the list for rushing, further down, with 143 carries for 726 yards.

There’s another Jacob Tucker who appears in the rankings, from the Middle Tennessee Heat, a team in Mt. Juliet. If you weren’t paying attention, you might think that Jacob Tucker was highly ranked in both passing and receiving (which would be quite a feat!).

The hardest job in football

I took a few TV production classes in college — enough to know that I would never make it as a TV director. Here is an outstanding article from The Atlantic about what it takes to direct an NFL telecast, focusing on one of the experts in the field. It’s a great read, and it gives you a new appreciation for what it takes to juggle that many images and personnel in a live, no-holds-barred event.

Big, big hat tip to the Culture Making blog.

Oh, me of little faith!

I had been checking and checking and checking for the score of tonight’s Cascade / McEwen playoff game on the TSSAA web site, and when it finally showed up I wrote a post congratulating my alma mater on a great effort — unbeaten in the regular season, and then (or so I thought) beaten in the second round of the playoffs.

But luckily I clicked “save” instead of “publish,” and I ended up going back and looking one more time at the TSSAA web site so that I could link to it. I discovered that the score had been corrected — apparently, the first person who phoned it in, or who typed it into the TSSAA’s computers, had it backwards. Cascade won tonight, beating McEwen 55-20 and advancing to the third round of the playoffs.

Congratulations Champs! I was a fool to have ever doubted you.

Catching you up

Originally, I had planned to stay home Friday night and finish studying for layspeaking class. But it had been such a long week, and my sister had driven up from Linden so that she and my nephew could go to the Cascade / Jo Byrns game. I decided to go with them. We enjoyed the outing, although obviously we were disappointed that Cascade lost.

Layspeaking class went very well today, and we stayed as scheduled within the first three chapters of the book, so I didn’t miss anything by going to the ball game. Jackie Clevenger is a great teacher, and it’s a really great group. I volunteered to do our opening devotional for the second half of the class next Saturday.

I got home tonight and did some polish work on my sermon for Cannon UMC for tomorrow. I printed out a copy, then read through it, then made a few more changes. I went to print out another copy and my ink cartridges ran out. So I dropped them off at Walgreens for re-filling (cheaper than a new cartridge but easier and — I hope — more reliable than filling them myself). Walgreens is close to my parents’ house, so I stopped by to see everyone. My sister and two of her three kids spent last night and were still there; they’ll leave later tonight. I watched more episodes of “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” than a single, 45-year-old man should be forced to watch.

Eventually, I returned home, stopping by Walgreens to pick up the filled cartridges.

And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end

Well, the Champions are now 8-0, with their second shutout in a row and their third of the season. They have outscored their opponents 317-54. But it’s all prelude to next week, when they will face the other unbeaten team in Region 5A, Jo Byrns. (I assume they’re still unbeaten, although tonight’s score hasn’t posted yet at the TSSAA web site.)

UPDATE: I stand corrected! Jo Byrns lost tonight, leaving Cascade in sole possession of the Region 5A lead.
